|About Do More Than Give||Stories of Change||Speaking/Training|
|Traditional philanthropy is no antidote to the complex problems that challenge our world today. Donors who aim to achieve real results go beyond check-writing to proactively catalyze change.
Do More Than Give: The Six Practices of Donors Who Change the World brings to life the stories of stand-out foundations and individuals who transcend traditional philanthropy, and illuminates the six catalytic practices that all donors can employ to achieve greater impact.
|Through dozens of vivid stories, Do More Than Give shows how individual donors to large foundations can create real change. From the world’s largest private foundations (The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The Knight Foundation) and corporations (General Electric and Shell), to family and community foundations in diverse places (Boston, San Diego, Rio de Janeiro, London and beyond), learn how these and others employ catalytic practices to achieve significant impact.||Creating wide-scale systemic change can be difficult. If you would like to learn more about applying the practices in Do More Than Give to your work, authors Leslie Crutchfield, John Kania and Mark Kramer frequently give lectures and lead workshops, trainings and retreats for groups ranging in size from a half-dozen to thousands. They also advise corporations, foundations, nonprofits and governments as principals at FSG, a global social impact consulting firm.|
